Apartments At Yotel Will Be Targeted Towards Students & Working Professionals

Aqarat Kuwait Real Estate Company recently updated their website to show that 150-175 residential units at their Yotel Miami project will be apartments targeted to students and working professionals.

Previously, the developer had indicated that the residential units would be sold as condos.

Plans for the 45-story tower at 235 NE 2nd Street were submitted in July 2015. Since then, there haven’t been any permits pulled, and the lot remains vacant.

I liked the building that was there with the bay windows. Of all shanty old buildings in the downtown Brickell area it was neat.

Shanty? Unlike the above proposed cheap mess of windows, it was real architecture which built Miami. Yes, something taller is appropriate for a piece of property adjacent to other high-rises and a Metromover stop, but the aforementioned is vastly inferior.

Indeed, great housing for nearby MDCC students.

As if the typical MDC student can afford it.

I can afford it and thousands of other students can. I hope you know many of us have jobs, some in the area. Also many students are rich going to MDC.

What do you suggest? How does one make affordable yet profitable apartments in the center of downtown?

Downtown…
Hello….
Why build parking?
Parking is for suburbia

Anxious to learn the price point. It’s laughable what most of these newer apartments aimed towards young working professionals and students consider ‘affordable’.

Yep. As if the salaries reflected the asking prices down here.

Too bad the Kuwaiti developer is proposing third-rate architecture instead of courting the first-rate architecture seen in Kuwait. Frankly, it’s insultingly defeatist.

You keep typing the same crap. Must be the Kuwaiti developer! its a piece of crap lot sandwiched between a tall condo tower and the people-mover track. can’t see how they’ll squeeze a 40-45 floor building there!
